I suspect if you were able to turn off the TPMS. It would have to be done via the BCM/PCM with the Ford VCMII and IDS. The 2011 thru 2016 have an option to turn on/off the TPMS since the same module is on both SRW and DRW. The TPMS is allow programmable for the tire pressure thresholds.
I have had duallies for decades. Flats on inboard tires that are undetectable when not loaded have damaged 4 trucks and caused replacement of tires where there was no damge to vehicle on twice that many more. I think dually TPMS is more useful than it is ever has been on a SRW truck.
TPMS is aggravating when tires already having borderline low pressure end up triggering warnings on that first cold morning.
Yes, indeed, why? Although I am not doubting someone's reason for the delete. I just want to learn from others. He must have a reason for wanting to not have a dually TPMS. And it may be a great reason or a not so great reason. Still, any reason is worth hearing.
The main reason is, if it is not mandated to have it then I don't want it and I don't need it, it is something else to have an issue with and with the jobs I've had, you get in the routine of checking the vehicle, I've only had 3 tires catch me off guard in 20 years. Actually it would not bother me so much if they had two settings for the rear, loaded and unloaded but I know that makes sense and ford won't do it.
My 2011 F350 SRW LB 4x4 has a 11,500 GVWR and a 23,500 GCWR. Looks like the same configuration on the '17 has the same GVWR, but a 28,200 GCWR. That's an increase of 4700 lbs. Wow! Can that be from the new boxed frame?
The Advanced Security Pack is standard on Lariat and above. It's an option on XLT. What does it do? Yes, I read that it has an intrusion/inclination sensor. So, what does it do if it senses an intrusion/inclination? Set off an alarm? Disable the ignition?
